Tegucigalpa Airport

So I started my Honduras research and came across some interesting factoids about the airport of all things:

Toncontin airport of Tegucigalpa, Honduras is considered to be one of the world's most dangerous airports due to the steep approach required, high elevation, short sloping runway and high terrain in very close proximity.

Obviously flying into such an airport is something everyone must do at least once in their life!

At the airport in Dutch Harbor, Alaska, the tail of your plane is hanging over water when you start to take off...and you can see the other side of the harbor getting very, very close before you take to the air...And Tecucigalpa sounds much, much scarier. You people are gonna have fun!
